“Neither Wolf Nor Dog” Showing in Powell
Written by Andrew-Rossi on November 15, 2018
Powell and Cody residents have a unique opportunity tomorrow night to see a movie that has defied Hollywood logic and become a critically acclaimed film, despite a lack of widespread marketing or backing.
The movie, “Neither Wolf Nor Dog” is being touted as, quote, “the most successful non-Hollywood native American themed film in a generation,” endquote. The film is going to be shown at the Vali Twin in Powell tomorrow, thanks to a petition that was signed by over a hundred local residents.
KODI interviewed the film’s director, Steven Lewis Simpson, who is currently living and working in Bulgaria. Simpson said that so many people from Cody and Powell were wanting to see the film that the owners of the Vali Twin have booked the film for one week beginning November 16th.
The movie, which was filmed on South Dakota’s Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, has steadily rolled out through the nation. It has often beaten blockbusters in theatres, and film critic Louis Fowler named Neither Wolf Nor Dog the number one film of 2017. It has a higher audience score on Rotten Tomatoes than any big Hollywood movie out at the moment – 4.7 out of 5, and the film has had a longer theatrical run than any other US film released in the past decade.
